Straily (6-6) was impressive in a victory over the Giants and Madison Bumgarner on Wednesday. Straily allowed one run on three hits, struck out five and walked one over 7.2 innings.

EDGE Analysis

The only run Straily allowed was a solo bomb to Conor Gillaspie. The right-hander retired the side in order the first two frames and only allowed three of the first 24 batters he faced to reach base. Straily hasn't allowed more than two runs in any of his last three starts. He will try to keep this going in his next outing against the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Straily (5-6) allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out eight over six innings to earn the win Friday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Straily gave up both of his runs in the first inning before settling down nicely, leaving the contest with a 4-2 lead. He's now fired four straight quality starts to lower his ERA to 4.01 on the year. He'll make his next start Wednesday at the Giants.

Straily (4-6) threw seven scoreless innings Sunday, giving up just three hits and a walk while striking out four, but came away with a no-decision in a win over the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

He and Zach Davies traded goose eggs for seven innings before Billy Hamilton scampered home on a passed ball in the ninth inning for the game's only run. Straily pounded the zone all game, throwing 72 of 99 pitches for strikes and starting 18 of 25 batters off with first-pitch strikes, and it was actually the first time in nine starts that he walked fewer than two batters. He'll next take the mound at home Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Straily gave up three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings in a loss to the Marlins on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

It was a quality start for Straily, his second in a row and ninth in 16 first-half starts for Cincinnati. He has failed to strike out more than five batters in any of his last eight outings (28:21 K:BB over that stretch), but Straily's shown signs of improvement on the road in recent weeks. Despite some bumps in the road, the right-hander has been a bright spot for the lowly Reds so far this season.

Straily allowed three runs on two hits, struck out four, and walked three in a no-decision against the Nationals on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He had a three-run lead in the eighth, but Straily walked Stephen Drew to begin the frame and then yielded a homer to Danny Espinosa. The Cincinnati bullpen allowed the tying run later in the seventh to spoil Straily fine first seven innings. Saturday had a disappointing end, but overall, the performance was a nice bounce back from allowing seven runs on nine hits versus the Cubs in his last start. Straily will have one more outing Friday against the Marlins before the All-Star break.

Straily (4-5) was beaten up for seven runs in 3.2 innings on Monday against the Cubs. He allowed nine hits, walked three, and struck out just two.

EDGE Analysis

Straily has hit the skids in a major way this month, allowing 17 runs over his last 14 innings. The righty still has the potential to be a big part of the Reds' rotation the rest of the season, having allowed just 14 runs in seven starts before this recent stretch. Straily will take the ball again on Saturday against the Nationals.

Straily (4-4) gave up four runs on three hits and two runs over six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

If it sounds like he got a bit unlucky, well, he did -- Straily only put six men on base, including hitting a batter, but almost all that action happened in the fourth inning, when he loaded the bases on two walks and the aforementioned hit batsman, then proceeded to give up a pair of hits and a run-scoring groundout. Other than that, Straily was nearly untouchable, but that was enough to send him to a loss with Cole Hamels pitching on the other side. Straily's now been tagged for 10 runs in his last 10.1 innings, and his K:BB (now 72:37) remains cause for concern -- as does the fact that he pitches for the Reds. Those factors conspire to limit the righty's value to deeper fantasy formats.

Straily (4-3) took a step back Thursday, giving up six runs on seven hits and three walks over just 4.1 innings in a loss to the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

He came in on a hot streak -- eight out of nine starts with three or fewer runs -- and was facing a weak Atlanta offense, so it seemed like Straily had a good chance to keep it rolling, but Freddie Freeman and the Braves have found something on offense over the last few games, and the Reds pitchers have taken it on the chin. While Straily's impressed this season, his walk rate (4.00 BB/9) is much too high while his BABIP remains fortunately low; there's likely to be further course correction in his future.

Straily pitched seven great innings, allowing one run over five hits while striking out five and walking three in a 2-1 victory over the Athletics on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

After allowing an RBI single in the first, Straily induced a double play to get out of the jam and then settled in to throw six scoreless innings. He threw 65 of his 109 pitches for a strike and recorded 18 called strikes. Straily has allowed two or fewer runs while pitching seven innings in each of his last two starts. He will look to keep this momentum going in his next start versus Atlanta on Thursday.

Straily and Brandon Finnegan are secure in their rotation slots with Anthony DeSclafani returning, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports. "(Dan) Straily and (Brandon) Finnegan aren't going anywhere," manager Bryan Price said. "We have to make a decision on the remaining three."

EDGE Analysis

The Reds are choosing between removing Alfredo Simon, Jon Moscot or John Lamb to make room for DeSclafani. Straily was the last to join the Reds from that group, but he's prospered with his opportunity.
